Detectival have public liability insurance as a legal requirement, however, all dig attendees must still be members of either JUST DETECT, or NCMD (National Council for Metal Detecting) or FID (The Federation of Independent Detectorists). This is to make sure all attendees have the correct insurance while detecting at our events. The event organisers cannot be held responsible for any detectorist that does not have insurance, the detectorist will be fully liable for their own insurance and actions.

Landowners reserve the right to terminate a dig day or event at any time during the event, funds are non-refundable.

Dig sites, locations and conditions are subject to change at any time without prior notification to attendees, we will always do our best to inform attendees of changes made as soon as we are aware of them.

All dig attendees must pay for their dig ticket in advance, we do not accept ticket payments on the day. If spaces are available camping can be purchased on the day at the Check-In Tent.

Detectival will always do their best to find sites that have a good historical background and may result in some significant and interesting finds. We cannot guarantee that all the sites will result in such finds and we cannot be held responsible for sites that do not.

Detectival provide various land across the South of England for metal detectorists to search for various metals, artefacts, coins, buttons and other metal objects. If a metal detectorist attends and detects on a dig day or event arranged by Detectival then the metal detectorist has received the service that Detectival provides, and the metal detectorist is required to pay for that service. In accordance with the accepted practices of all professional events organisations demands for refunds on a service already provided cannot be entertained on principle. No exception whatsoever can be made to this rule as Detectival cannot be held responsible for individual’s tastes, expectations or personal opinions. This includes elements beyond Detectival control including the weather on the dig day, the land condition, the individual’s own length of attendance on the dig day, and the landowner’s right to cancel the dig day at any time during the duration of the event.
